Defenceman Justin Barron made his Habs debut wearing No. 52. Interim head coach Martin St. Louis entrusted the rookie with three shifts on three-on-three overtime. Barron played 17:55 in total, entirely on even-strength. He was paired with Joel Edmundson, who happened to be playing his 400th game in the NHL.

After five consecutive starts for Jake Allen, it was Sam Montembeault’s turn in goal and he made 30 saves. Former first overall pick Jack Hughes supplied all the offence for the Devils before the shootout, scoring twice.

After suffering upper-body injuries in Saturday’s game, Tyler Pitlick and Michael Pezzetta were replaced by Jesse Ylönen and Mathieu Perreault in the lineup. Ylönen didn’t play much, but assisted on the first Montreal goal.
